Council appoints the Chief Administrative Officer to manage the operation of the entire organization. Programs and service levels are guided by the Council Strategic Plan, which sets out goals, objectives, and priorities. Administration’s main goals are to manage the City's infrastructure in a cost-effective and safe manner while diversifying our economy, reducing our carbon footprint, maintaining our high quality of life, and providing excellent service delivery for our citizens.
The Executive Assistant (EA) to the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) works directly with the CAO to ensure the efficient operation of the CAO's office. The EA coordinates and manages the Corporate Strategic Plan in order to meet the goals, objectives, and priorities in the Council Strategic Plan. The EA also manages all other corporate strategic documents and works with the City’s directors to ensure goals are met.
The Communications and Community Engagement Division and the External Relations Manager both report directly to the CAO.
